A U.S. marshal forgot his loaded gun, leaving it on top of a toilet paper dispenser in a bathroom stall at Newark Liberty International Airport, one of the country's busiest hubs.

Makes ya wonder what kind of "clowns" they are hiring to
allegedly protect us....

"Okay, sir, surrender. I have my fingers pointed at you"

What's the difference between a gun and a roll of toilet paper?

Well there's at least one person out there that doesn't know.

He was busy writing limericks on the walls.

This happens a lot more often than you think. When I worked at an airport that rhymed with Smed Smevens I had a nice older lady come up and whisper, "I think someone forgot these in the bathroom." She handed me a holster with a loaded pistol in it and a Federal Air Marshal's badge on it. I checked the log and found out which flight the female FAM might be on and set out for the gate. Needless to say she owned me BIG TIME.

Another time I had a couple walk up to me. They looked like they were arguing. Finally the man said, "Show him Honey!". The woman held out her open purse and there was the cutest .357 revolver nestled in there with all of her other stuff. This was remarkable because she had just passed through screening. It was not a small revolver either. Think Python. Thinking quickly, I said, "Let's find a police officer. And close that thing up." We found a police officer who took possession of the revolver and held it at the police station for her to pick up when she came back. The Airport Police here are nice like that.

Fly safe America! TSA has your back!
